Dear EVCS Families,

A group of volunteers joined us this afternoon with more food, to help deliver donations and to sort items outside the Trinity church. The EVCS Food Driveis more critical than ever this year and it was wonderful to have your support. We collected over 500 cans. Thanks again to everyone for this effort. Helping others is part of our core value of social action.
If you would like to make a monetary donation to Trinity to support their food services, please do so directly at this link: safhnyc.org

Parent Curriculum Meetings are happening next Tuesday, November 24.
Learn more about what a typical day looks like, curriculum for the school year and more about priority standards in reading, writing, and math. There will also be some time for Q and A. We hope everyone will plan to attend this informative virtual share with your child’s teacher. Please be sure to connect with them for the meeting details if you have not done so already.

The EVCS Speech Festival deadline is fast approaching – take this opportunity to let your voice and your topic be heard! What a great way to practice your public speaking skills and share ideas. Please remember to upload your speeches on or before Wednesday, November 25th to Flip Grid. The details are posted in your Google Classrooms from Eric.
